On Thursday, Dr. Fauci lamented that scientists and public health experts have been viewed as “authoritarians” during the pandemic. There’s a reason for that, Doc.
That’s because so many public health “experts” have absolutely beclowned themselves during this pandemic.
We’ve been told:
- you don’t need a mask/you must wear a mask flip-flop
- the new studies that suddenly show that cloth masks are effective contradicting prior wide-scale studies (and most of the people contracting COVID after masks were recommended were wearing masks regularly)
- wear masks inside your home
- massive “anti-racism” protests are fine
- an outdoor biker rally in Sturgis, SD is dangerous
- (prematurely) celebrating a Biden win by partying in the streets aren’t “super-spreader” events
- announcing and confirming a Supreme Court nominee outdoors in the Rose Garden are “super-spreader” events
- don’t kiss and wear a mask while having sex or consider using “glory holes” (don’t Google it!)
- “hook-up” apps are a-okay
- indoor concerts are apparently safe
- flying on a plane is safer than going to the grocery store
- schools need to be closed until we have “Medicare for all”
- kids can just transition to “e-learning”
- going to church could be deadly
Yeah, so there’s nothing contradictory in that list, is there? Nothing seemingly authoritarian? No?
Not to Dr. Fauci.
In a socially-distanced discussion where he was indoors and removed his mask, Dr. Fauci says that the concept of Individual Liberty that is the thing that makes the United States that “Shining City On A Hill” to the rest of the world should be curbed during a pandemic and Americans should just “do what they’re told.”
Whitehouse coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci thinks that Americans have an independent spirit, but that there are times when it’s in our best interest to follow the rules.
Fauci, speaking on Thursday at Washington National Cathedral with other top health experts on the pandemic, noted that it is a bit unfair to compare the United States’ coronavirus response with other countries. The United States isn’t an island with five million people that can easily be shut down, he notes. So suppressing and controlling the virus is a lot more of a challenge.
“I was talking with my U.K. colleagues who are saying the U.K. is similar to where we are now, because each of our countries have that independent spirit,” he said on stage. “I can understand that, but now is the time to do what you’re told.”
Here is what Dr. Fauci said right near the end:
I love the chuckle at the end there from “The Fauch.”
Just do what we’re told?
What we’re told is contradictory!
Wear a mask inside your home and you could die if you go to church but an indoor concert is fine. The Sturgis Biker rally is a “super-spreader event” but the George Floyd riots and partying in the streets are not?!
Does that somehow make any sense?!
This is your reminder that a public health expert is just a Swamp Creature with a medical degree.
Dr. Fauci has been working in public health since 1968. Maybe it’s time to hang up the stethoscope, Doc.
